History

Prior to Ten Thousand, the 2.4-acre lot was occupied by an office building built in 1970, and the site was once home to Jimmy's restaurant, a popular hangout for celebrities and local politicians. After demolition in the early 2000s, the site was considered highly valuable and was contested by many developers including Donald Trump. The auction was won by SunCal Cos of Irvine but the company filed for bankruptcy in 2008. Eventually, the site was bought for $59 million by Crescent Heights in late 2010. The project was financed by Bank of China which lent $390 million in mortgage financing to Crescent Heights. Construction started in 2014 and completed in 2016. Ten Thousand opened for lease in 2017. In March 2018, Ten Thousand was certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Design and location

The building exterior, designed by San Francisco architecture firm Handel Architects, is made from metal panel, stone and glass. The structural engineer was Magnusson Klemencic Associates. The interiors and landscape were designed by Shamir Shah Design and RELM Studio. The high-rise is located between Century City neighborhood and Beverly Hills, in walking distance from Rodeo Drive and Westfield Century City Amenities include a one-acre park, two pools, a tennis and basketball court, fitness center, resident lounge, private theater, robot butler and elements of Smart Home technology.
